, the government, says yes. the defense says look at things like that video. it's all about embarrassing the government. manning was disillusioned with the war, he was troubled by what he saw like the matter in that video, and he wanted the public to know what was going on. that's the defense's case. the prosecution sees it very differently. >> is manning really looking at 136 years in prison, or in the end, could it really be a much shorter time? >> reporter: well, that would be the maximum. you know, there is an interesting wrinkle in that question, because the judge has already said she will knock off about 112 days off any sentence he gets because of the time he served at a military prison here in the washington area in which he was held in solitary confinement, stripped naked. the government again said that was because he was a suicide risk. the judge found suicide risk or not, that was not the correct or appropriate condition for him to be held in, so she's already going to take time off for that. i think the issue is the government will go for the maximum, and the defense will hav

piece. >> i would think so, yes. >> but bill's defense attorney was determined to tell a different story and came out swinging with a stunning never-before-seen piece of evidence. a statement from a then 17-year-old named linda primrose given to the police just a few months after the murders. she said she actually saw the murders happen with her own eyes. >> linda told the police that she was there. she told the police how they were killed. >> linda primrose took the police right to the crime scene and gave them a detailed account of what happened including details which had not been made public. >> and it matched what the police found. >> it matched what the police found. >> the primrose statement named the killer, a crazed and violent 5'8" hispanic man named ernie. when she took the stand at the trial, linda primrose retracted her original statement, said it was nothing but lies. >> she told the jury that she remembers making those statements back in 1962 but that she lied. that those were false statements. >> the defense was stunned. but they came back with another bombshell that now
, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because
. a black teenager shot dead after a white gunman claiming defense opens fire on him and his friends. anderson talks to the dead boy's parents. later, what anthony weiner's sexting partner has to say about the man, what she wants to say to his wife and what the voters have to say about it all. we begin, though, with the zimmerman juror b29, the only nonwhite juror, her name is maddie, the one holdout, at least for a while. she says she owes trayvon martin's family an apology, because she ultimately had no choice but to acquit a man she calls a murderer. she spoke to abc's robin roberts. the interview aired on abc's "world news." >> what was your first vote? >> my first vote was second degree murder. >> second degree murder? >> it was hard. a lot of us wanted to find something bad, something that we could connect to the loss. for myself, he's guilty because the evidence shows he's guilty. >> he's guilty of? >> killing trayvon martin. but as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty. >> did you want to step out at all? >> i
relate to his experience, and largely saw the confrontation through his eyes and the way the defense portrayed it. but she couldn't identify with trayvon martin's friend. so that term creepy-ass cracka that rachel jeantel said trayvon used, you're saying that's simply how they talked to each other? >> sure. that's the way they talk. >> did you sew that as a negative statement or a racial statement as the defense suggested? >> i don't think it's really racial. i think it's just everyday life, the type of life that they live and how they're living and the environment that they're living in. >> so you didn't find her credible as a witness? >> no. >> so juror b37 was part of a six-member panel. one of our guests said the trial was over when the jury was seated. do you think that's a fair statement? and more broadly, is racial bias built into the system? let's talk about it with sunny hostin, jeffrey toobin, jose baez, robert horshorn, and mark geragos, who said the trial was over in jury selection. sunny, i want to start with you. when this trial started, you said race had nothing to do

and today on "studio b," a former military prosecutor, who is now a defense attorney, told me the government has not convicted somebody of aiding the enemy since 1917. >> that was is essentially a case where somebody was disclosing information because they wanted americans to be killed. they wanted the enemy to have this information. and, in this case, i think the government just was not able to prove that pfc manning intentionally disclosed this to the enemy. >> shepard: manning supporters demonstrated outside othe courthouse today they see him as the whistle blower, a hero, not a criminal. so do lawyers who just called him naive with good intentions. manning admits he did give wikileaks more than 700,000 documents. prosecutors claim he knew al qaeda would see that information on that, prosecutors for the government lost completely. catherine herridge is on fox top story in the courthouse in fort mead in maryland. what happened in the courtroom today, catherine. >> late today the a.p. picked up comments from the defense indicating that they really felt today's verdict was a significant win

defense attorney ken padowitz. thank you all for joining me. >> great to be here. >> thank you. >> joy, what is your reaction to hearing that this juror says, quote, george zimmerman got away with murder? >> you know, i think, first of all, it's finally a relief to find out that really there were no blacks on the jury. there was a matter of contention. we know now this was the juror who initially wanted to charge second-degree murder. so in her mind, this was a murder, it wasn't a killing. but you have all of these dynamics. and seema can probably talk more about this than i can. you have only six people, six women, the group think and the pressure that had to be on this juror to go all the way from second-degree murder, and as she said, to fight to the end for that idea, to have two other jurors who wanted manslaughter and three jurors who wanted to acquit when they took that first vote according to b37, the other juror. so the idea that you took three people who thought that this was a murder or at least a crime and have them converted over by the pressure that had to have been put o

applauded the defense team after the verdict, neither the defense or prosecution spoke directly to reporters. via twitter, wikileaks said dangerous national security extremism from the obama administration. the reporter that broke edward snowden's story said manning's treatment seemed to explain why the former contractor fled the country. >> reporter: there was no immediate response from the obama administration to the manning verdict. he now faces maximum sentence of 136 years in prison, which is effectively a life sentence. that sentencing phase begins tomorrow, and it is expected to take several weeks, bret. >> catherine herridge live at fort meade. thank you. >>> another indication tonight of major problems for the veterans administration. it has to do with the construction of new va facilities. correspondent alicia acuna is in aurora, colorado with tonight's edition of it's all your money. >> just overwrought with cost overruns and broken deadlines, and that's not unusual for government projects, but these are hospitals. >> reporter: construction of a new veterans administration hospita
not require intent. and she never addresses self-defense. that was such a focal point in the case, not only for the defense, also for the prosecution. they had the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt there was not self-defense. >> lisa, what do you think? >> i think there's no question that george zimmerman shot trayvon martin intention ally. he according to his own statements pulled out the gun and shot the gun intentionally. it's so disturbing to hear a juror speak after the fact that perhaps she should have held out when she had every opportunity in the jury room to voice how she felt and stand her ground and ultimately she chose not to. >> she's chose not to. mash, go ahead. when you heard this woman explain her rational, what did you think? >> the parties that i'm extracting from it i want to compliment about. trials are not moral try b-- tribunals in the united states. it happens every day in american jurisprudence. people may be everything from child molesters to murderers and robbers and everything in between but you have to apply the fact, you have to apply the evidence to th
been six iterations of a defense in the irs case. but remember, lois learner disclosed at a conference, that's how we learned about it. then we went into it was two rogue agents, then it went to, well, it was a progressive group so we're targeted to not just conservative groups, so as long as we treat two different sets of people improperly, at least it's not discrimination. now the new defense is, well, the president himself didn't know about it. if that's the new standard for i am -- impropriety in this town, that the president didn't even know about it? >> if they had been denied right at the get-go, then they could have appealed it to another part of the irs. instead, what was so sadistic about this and so painful, they were in this no man's land and they couldn't appeal it. they would have been far better off if the irs agents, whoever was involved in this, however high it went, if they simply said no and denied it so they could appeal it. but instead they strung them out. >> that suggested more culpability, and you're right, it's as if they just gave up. these are average america
in a strong national defense, how do you have enough funding? i'm willing to cut entire departments. my problem with some of the more liberal members of the republican party is, they're not willing to cut spending other places in order to preserve national defense. >> joining me now is robert george, editorial writer for new york post, josh barrel and tim carnie, senior political columnist for the washington examiner. visiting fellow at the enterprise institute. you're team paul in this one, i take it? what do you think -- why do you think this is a good fight for the republicans to have? i sense you do think it is. and why is paul the one that you're backing, that you feel speaks for the party the best. >> first let me say i do not accept rand paul's premise that eating bacon makes you gain weights, i think it's the carbs. in the foreign policy realm, what we need and in the national security realm, as far as nsa, spying and the great stuff that you and glenn were talking about earlier, what we need is a robust debate and there hasn't been that in the republican party for a long time.
charge. he was found not guilty of aiding the enemy. cully stimson, former secretary of defense tore detainees and legal fellow with the heritage foundation and mike barrett, former intelligence officer for the office of the secretary of defense. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> thanks for having us. heather: why not guilty for aiding and abetting the enemy? i will start with you, cully. >> heather to, prove aiding the enemy under the statute the government had to prove one, knowingly provided intelligence to the enemy. the enemy is al qaeda an the taliban and two he did so knowingly. so there was a double burden. the judge had to be firmly convinced that was the case and clearly they didn't prove their case. one thing if he provided directly to al qaeda or taliban and posted to one of their websites. imagine this, if he gave the same information to "washington post" and guardian, and published some of it would he be charged with aiding the enemy? i doubt it. so there was a failure of proof. heather: mike, can you compare wikileaks to "washington post" and "the guardian"? >
that's been problematic from the case is the defense defines george zimmerman in a way that was helpful to his defense, but i don't think they feel as though their son has been well defined and sort of who he was. >> reporter: the back and forth over the martin case went to new heights after president obama himself weighed in with a deeply personal speech. >> when trayvon martin was first shot, i said that this could have been my son. another way of saying that is trayvon martin could have been me 35 years ago. >> all eyes are on the attorney general eric holder. the obama constituency wants to know whether they'll take any further steps in the case. >> by allowing and perhaps encouraging violent situations to escalate in public, such laws undermine public safety. the list of results tragedies is long and unfortunately has victimized too many who are innocent. it is our collective obligation. we must stand our ground. >> the martin family has started a foundation to honor trayvon's memory and to push for changes. >> we're here today to see what we can do to stop this from happening to y

killed off the little guy competition. both companies have sizable defense businesses while defense orders in the future may be slowing, there's very little competition for these contracts. hey, we know that from lockheed martin, which reported a marvelous number, and it has a stock that simply won't quit. or northrup grumman like we promoted last night on "off the charts." going higher. the defense names are the strongest stocks in this market this year. sequester? no competition. how about the railroads like csx and union pacific? monster good numbers. the rails, they don't compete. they raise prices routinely when contracts roll over. that is a fantastic business. let's talk health care. united health groups dazzled the dow. why? because these health maintenance companies have to -- well, to look -- i think they stopped competing on price. it's like they carved up the whole country. johnson & johnson posted terrific numbers. patent protection made that possible. no competition. but do you know who has the least competitive marketplace versus the old days? wow, is this a change. a
for the george zimmerman defense team. great to see both of you on the show. and natalie, let me start with you. she said she owes the martin family an apology. i want to get your response to what she said. >> it is hard for me to sleep. hard for me to eat. i feel that i was forcefully included in trayvon martin's death. and i carry him on my back, i'm hurting as much as trayvon martin's mom is. there's no way that any mother should feel that pain. >> what's your reaction? >> well, my reaction is that i feel for her. i do. and i know that she issued an apology to sybrina fulton and i think that's between her and sybrina to talk about, really. i have not spoken to sybrina about that. but you know, it's her decision and she has to live with that. >> barbara, let me tell you what we know that this juror. i want to emphasize, she did choose to show her face but she is going by mady, not giving her full name. she is worried about possible retribution. we know she is 36 years old. she describes herself as puerto rican. she has only been in florida five months. lived previously in chicago. she has eig

christie. >> senator paul wants to start looking at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense? maybe he should start looking at cutting the pork barrel spending he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every $1 and not look at new jersey, where we get 61 cents for every dollar, maybe senator paul could, you know, deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side, but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> what did you think of that? >> well just not true. i don't vote to bring home any bacon because i told the people of kentucky when i ran for office there wasn't any money up here and i would try to vote to keep more of their money in kentucky by lowering their taxes but i wasn't bringing anything home because we were $1 trillion short. governor christie can't point to any votes that i've ever voted to bring pork barrel projects to any state. i do work to try to bring money home from overseas and use it here at home but really it's just not accurate.
